Imps are sometimes recolored variations of Gremlins and other times, Gargoyles, and have debuted as debuffing enemies at the Mysidian Tower in Final Fantasy II.

A diminutive species of demon, frequently sighted in the Near East in recent times. Though skilled in the use of elemental and dark magic, these natural-born cowards are not considered a threat when encountered alone. They do, however, carry a horn, from which they produce a deafening noise of a scale completely out of proportion to their tiny bodies, warning their allies and startling enemy forces.
In the time of the Great War, Imps were given the roles of scouts and messengers in the Shadow Lord's armies, and are thus well known to veteran soldiers even on the continent of Quon.
Critical hits or weapon skills may break an Imp's horn, although they are able to utilize another one after the first one is broken.
